Over-engineered in typical Volkswagon fashion, these bars have brackets that lock on to factory installed screws hidden beneath the flexible rain gutters and integrated black rubber strips to grip your cargo and prevent marks. . It only takes a few moments to install or remove these bars. Each base has an integrated lock, so there is no worry about the bars "walking off" when your car is parked. The bars may be extruded aluminum, but feel substantial enough to pick up the car. ;)

The front bar "sings" at about 40 mph. A deflector should remedy that, since it can not be moved back (factory mounting screws determine locations of the bars)..

I use straps with hooks to secure cargo on these bars (tripod stands for stage lighting), so I drilled a hole on the bottom of both ends of these bars for the straps to hook in to.

No surprises here. Fits my 2001 VW Golf (4dr) perfectly. The rubber padding for the top of the bars was a bit tough to stuff into the rails but not a huge deal.

Overall, a solid rack with good fit to my 2005 Golf TDI. As advertised it attaches to the stock mounts on the car.

A few problems though.
1) The metal attachment piece that grabs the built in bolts on the car was bent and had residual metal from the stamping process. I had to disassemble it grind it down a bit, then bend it back into shape. No biggie, but if your not mechanically inclined it would be an issue.
2) The metal attachment pieces don't grab the built in bolts on the car very well nor slide into the tighten position. As you tighten they should spread out and grab the bolts on the car, but they would reach max torque before fully engaging. I used a piece of 2x4 and a hammer to spread them out and fully engage the bolts and then tighten to max torque. Doing this they fully engage the bolts on the car.
3) Since the bars do not extend past the feed, they are kind of narrow. I might prefer a wider rack, but others may not like that look. It's personal preference.
4) This is no fault of the rack, but given I have a 4 door car, the mount bolts on the care are closer then they need to be to each other (forward and aft). It will be fine for bike racks, but longer cargo boxes or surfboards will have will have some issues. It seems an aftermarket rack that doesn't use the propositioned bolts would be positioned further apart.

Overall, it's an OK rack and worth about $200. If you have a bit more money, I would recommend going with an aftermarket brand. If you looking for an inexpensive alternative, this would be a good choice.

Item was as described. The bars were easy to install. The materials the bars were made of seem to be of a good quality. The bars are being used in conjunction with J racks to transport my kayaks on my 2001 Jetta TDI. The bars seem to be holding up quite welI. I've been on several trips with my kayaks at speeds up to 70mph and everything is rock solid. I would recommend these bars to anyone. The top of the bars have channels for those that have devices that attach to cross bars in that fashion.

The rack itself works perfectly on my Jetta TDI 2000 GLS. The seller was extremely helpful. When I received the product the key was lost in shipping. I contacted Fowler VW and the parts manager made sure to get another set of key ready for shipping so i could use the product. Overall very satisfied I highly recommend purchasing from these guys since the parts manager put in the extra effort to make sure i was satisfied.

Cheaply made, feet don't sit flush, concerns over durability and longevity. Cover over the feet and lock-cores is plastic, not metal as previously thought. l assembled it in less than 30 minutes, but it is less than stellar quality. I would not pay 180, but 100-125 tops in the future

Works perfectly on my MKIV 2000 Jetta. Attached a Rhino Rack to the top with a bag and hauled from CA to OH with zero problems. Stayed secured the entire time, and did not come loose. Very easy to install and remove following the instructions provided.
